Q: What exactly does website migration mean and what does it entail?
A: If your present hosting provider can no longer meet the necessities of your web site, or if you undergo frequent network downtime, or if you are made to wait for hours for the technical support team to reply back to you, it may be a clever idea to swap your provider, i.e. to move all the files for your web sites as well as your databases from your present provider to your future provider. At Nashville Web Hosting, we are aware that this can be hard and time–consuming. That’s the reason why we will do all that for you for free!Our skilled technical staff representatives will transfer your website content from your current provider to us. Our technicians have got broad experience migrating websites and are able to handle anything – from an ordinary WordPress–driven blog or Joomla™ CMS–powered web site, to a very elaborate, custom–built web application.
Q: How much time will the website migration process take?
A: There are lots of factors to take into account – the total amount of files, the size of the database, the complexity of the site itself and the current workload of our web site migration professionals, etc. Having said that, we do our very best to carry out all website migrations within a 48–hour window. Less sizeable websites are transferred faster – usually in under 24 hours.
Q: Do you need something from me before you start transferring my web site?
A: We do not need any sensitive info. We’ll need, though, the login info for your present web hosting account and the name of the site that you wish to move.
Q: My old web hosting account has delicate data inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will my web site be offline during the migration?
A: Your web site will continue to work just like it did before with your old web hosting provider. As soon as we are done with the transfer, your website will be configured to work on our hosting platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If everything is functioning properly, all you will have to do is change the NS records associated with your domain. Your site will be migrated to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old hosting provider know that I’m leaving them?
A: No. Aside from your login credentials for the Control Panel, we will not need anything. We’ll never get in touch with your hosting provider. They will not know anything about the migration either.
Q: Which web hosting platforms do you support?
A: We support all Linux–driven hosting platforms. Fundamentally, if we can access your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your site.The only platforms that we do not support are closed–source web site management platforms such as Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
